Insertion-Free CLI Testing

by: Lauren Kane, VP of Marketing & Customer Engagement

ControlCam, in partnership with ICF, has developed over the last three years, an insertion free cumulative leakage index testing system. The new insertion-free system uses analog signals unique to each system, allowing for most systems to be tested without inserting test carriers. 

The technology behind the new testing is called wideband IQ recording. IQ recording can measure digital and analog carrier leakage, unlike standard fixed-tuned receiver testing (standard testing). Carrier insertion is usually not required with IQ recording (insertion-free testing) because it can identify and correct any modulation effects to peak power.  Read More

Buzzed - Working at an airport can be distracting 

by: David Freedman, CEO

There are good things and bad things about having your office at an air field. When I was a kid I was always fascinated by airplanes. Perhaps it was because my father was in the Air Force but I always wanted to learn more about planes, I even thought about becoming a pilot until I realized that with my vision I would never qualify. I used to build model airplanes and then hang them on the wall in the bedroom I shared with my younger brother. I just thought flying was the coolest thing.


My first chance to fly came when I was in college. I found out that if you joined the debate team you got to go on these cool trips that the school paid for. So, I joined and in my senior year became President of the debate team. That meant I decided who went on which trips and where they went. I picked tournaments like Tulane for my trips (during Mardi Gras of course) and made sure air travel was involved. I realized that I loved flying and that a side benefit of any position could be air travel. Read More


ASPRS Standards


by: David Lundeen, CTO

In November 2014, the ASPRS released updated standards for geospatial data accuracy. The ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards for Digital Geospatial Data replaces the ASPRS Accuracy Standards for Large-Scale Maps standard that was released in 1990. The new standard is more comprehensive and is more suitable for modern mapping capabilities.

The 2014 standard is fundamentally different than the 1990 standard. Instead of being based on map resolution, the accuracy requirements for each class of map are based on RMSE values for various measurements.  Read More


How Technology is Changing the Way Pilots Aviate for the Better and for the Worse


by: Rigo Gonzalez, Chief Pilot

Few industries, if any, have escaped the evolution of technology throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. From its humble beginnings in 1093, the powered aviation industry has undergone a series of rebirths as technology improved flight and design characteristics, cockpit automation, efficiency, and safety. These changes marked a steady decrease in aviation accidents over the last few decades, solidifying its place as the safest means of travel today. While seemingly a desired trend, the emergence of autopilot, technologically advanced aircraft, and fully equipped glass cockpits have caused a spike in accidents resulting from an overreliance on automation and an underutilization of traditional hand flying and pilotage skills.


Let it be clear that I am not denouncing the implementation of cockpit technology and automation. During the last 12 years I have flown both categories of today's aircraft throughout the majority of the Contiguous United States. The traditional style of flying is what most pilots of yesteryear are familiar with - stick and rudder hand flying, paper navigational charts, and navigational aids that do not utilize GPS. Read More
